"Dance at Brigham Young University is intended to reflect the culture from which it springs."
Dress Code Expectation
The Brigham Young University Department of Dance Dress Code Philosophy is based on conservative, functional, and professional standards for on and off-campus coursework, activities, and endeavors.
All BYU Department of Dance students and faculty are expected to wear dance class attire that is:
• no bare midriff
• no strapless shoulders
• no French cut/high cut leotards
• no low cut neck lines
• no excessively low backs
Representing our missions with excellence and class
- Genre/style appropriate
- Clean & mended
- Cover-ups to be worn outside studios
- Footwear complies with studio standards
- Attire helps the dancer feel, look, and move like a professional
Contemporary Dance Addendums:
- Form fitting attire is preferred and necessary for clear feedback and evaluation • Clothing should be adaptable for multiple class activities
- Layers and options that could cover legs or shoulders for floorwork are encouraged
- Clothing should be functional and not limit movement
- Be mindful if clothing articles shift while moving and become revealing • Under clothing should be covered appropriately
- Knee pads are recommended
